Top 5 Tips for Successful Immigration to Canada – Part 1

Setting yourself up for success during an immigration application is important, whether this includes getting informed, increasing your confidence or choosing the right representation. Here are some tips for those looking to do all three when immigrating to Canada

1. Get Informed

Depending on where you’re planning on living in Canada, take some classes to improve your English or French, if needed. Researching the job market in the area you plan on settling in will also give you an edge when it comes to how informed you are about living and working in Canada.

2. Don’t Lie

Presenting false information to an immigration officer or on any immigration form is one of the fastest ways to fail when immigrating to Canada. Steer clear of anyone who encourages you to lie or promises that they can provide you with documents to verify these lies, whether they’re in your home country or in Canada.

3. Be Ready To Submit Additional Information As Soon As Possible

Immigration officers may need additional information to properly process your immigration application or other paperwork. If additional information is requested, provide it as soon as possible to ensure that your case processing isn’t delayed.

4. Keep Copies Of Everything

Keep copies or records of everything sent to the immigration office, including dates and copies of receipts if something is sent via courier.

5. Check The Credentials Of Anyone Representing You

Generally, using an immigration lawyer presents a better chance of successful immigration to Canada than not hiring one–despite what the CIC Website says. But when hiring anyone to represent you during your immigration application or case always check their credentials, ask for references and make sure they have an office you can actually visit – not just a website you can’t hold accountable.
